#WELCOME TO LONG BEACH!

Thank you for signing up early to participate in the leading meeting in our country designed exclusively for Certified Nurse-Midwives and Nurse-Midwives, to be held next June! You are our "preliminary group" of exhibitors and due to your early commitment to participate, your company will be listed within the printed Attendee Mailer to be sent later this month to over 7,000 potential attendees.

Be sure to check out the Long Beach microsite posted on the official ACNM meeting website to learn about the unique setting of our host city.


#SURVEY FEEDBACK INFLUENCES 2012:

This year you'll reap the benefit of some changes made in response to attendee and exhibitor feedback. You've helped us shape the 2012 ACNM Exhibit Hall schedule and activities, now more tailored than ever before to your needs and to the needs of your customers.

  • Reduced open hours will be offered overall and those hours will be mostly unopposed by other activities.
  • An exhibitor lounge will be available within the hall for those who would like to take a break in a relaxing environment.
  • Many exhibitors expressed interest in an "email" mailing list so we've given attendees an opportunity to "opt in" if they wish to receive marketing based emails (see "Promote Your Booth" below for more details)
  • In the interest of attracting attendees into the hall, we've created opportunities for exhibitors to sponsor prize drawings and attractions. Already confirmed--a sand sculpture artist building a castle--and several prize drawings.

ACNM will help you get the word out!


Hosting a Product Theater, Breakfast or Dinner
There are currently 5, one-hour timeslots available to host a Product Theater. These unique settings offer exhibiting partners an opportunity to invite their customers into a VIP viewing of their products and services within a "session environment" inside the exhibit hall while hosting a light lunch. Hosted breakfast and dinner timeslots are also available for additional non-CE activities held within a meeting room. Contact Tana Stellato at ACNMMeeting@stellatosolutions.com for more information.

#HOTEL RESERVATIONS

Rooms are still available within the exhibitor block but will be on a first-come, first-serve basis after January. Even if you indicated your choice of hotel and number of rooms to ACNM staff, you still must contact the hotel and provide a credit card to hold the reservations. Please click on the following links today if you haven't already done so.

All exhibit personnel are required to reserve their room at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach or the Renaissance Long Beach Hotel in order to receive priority points. As an ACNM exhibitor, you will receive reduced rates and complimentary in room internet access. Click here for more information.

2013 ANNUAL MEETING AND EXPOSITION
IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

We will be selling booth space while onsite in Long Beach for the 2013 Exposition, to be held May 30 to June 4, at the Nashville Convention Center in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The order of selection will be based on a priority point system. Information on your company's current points, how they are calculated and the selection schedule will be emailed to you prior to the meeting. Space sales will be offered by appointment or by proxy in the Exhibit Manager's office on Monday and Tuesday in Long Beach. Build your points by having all of your booth personnel book their rooms at one of the official ACNM hotels! Stay tuned for more information.
